Isle Royale Cultural Resources Meetings Beginning

Posted: Updated:

HOUGHTON, Mich. (AP) - Officials are kicking off a series of public meetings this week to discuss a plan for dealing with cultural resources at Isle Royale National Park.

Isle Royale is an island chain in northwestern Lake Superior. Its cultural features range from prehistoric Native American mining remnants to lighthouses, shipwrecks and fishery sites. Officials say they illustrate how people shaped the landscape over thousands of years.

Park staffers produced the plan in consultation with tribal and state governments and other interested parties. It deals with general management, preservation, public use and interpretation of cultural resources. It's accompanied by an environmental impact statement.

The first public meeting is Tuesday at 6 p.m. at Franklin Square Inn in Houghton. Others will be held in Chelsea, Mich., and in St. Paul and Duluth, Minn.
